Making the decision to adopt an animal is no small thing. Much thought and consideration should be invested to be sure this is something you can commit to. The Weyburn Humane Society has had the misfortune of sharing in the disappointment of someone who wanted to surprise their loved one with a cat, only to return it just hours later. The recipient was not impressed with the gift nor her boyfriend for thinking she wanted the responsibility of caring for a pet.
Surprises of the right kind can be a joyous occasion. But not when it comes to pets. They are not disposable. They require time and money to ensure their health and happiness. Please always discuss with your family before you take on pet ownership.
